Suggested Pre-Referral Evaluation and Management Guidelines
Referral is indicated if patient is refractory to medical therapy.
Consultation with Infectious Disease specialist is recommended prior to referral for surgical intervention.
Suggested Additional Test/Management Prior to Specialty Visit
- CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis with oral and IV contrast
- Labs to include comprehensive metabolic panel, CBCP, PT, PTT
- Stool culture identifying the infectious agent
Reports of any testing performed outside of the UMHS system and radiologic images on CD should be available for review at or before the time of the clinic visit. Receiving these prior to the clinic visit is preferable.
